Health Insurance Debate

We keep calling what we see in congress as a health care debate. True health care would be the societal policies and expectactions that would provide everyone an honest opportunity to live a health and long life. Only corporations are supported in that way.

What we have is a health insurance debate to attempt to provide access to illness treatement services. Changing the health of the country in the future will depend on preventing illness through policy. Medical services providers do very little prevention work.

If we want changes in health we'll need to change power dynamics. We'll need political parties that support family friendly wages, educational for all, and health coverage for all as a given!
